Was served with a pleasant looking fairly bright amber color with some lacing. Smell was nice, with some caramel from the malt and some pine from the hops and the alcohol well concealed. The taste was similar, with fruit, caramel, and pine, and the flavors were fairly bold and the alcohol was again hidden. The mouthfeel was the only thing off for me, as it was somewhat too thin and undercarbonated. Overall, this was a good, but not exceptional beer. Perhaps it was served too cold, but nothing stuck out here too much, although it was nicely balanced.

Pours clear, reddish-brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is dry herbal hops, sweet caramel, toasted malt, and brown sugar. Complex for the style. This is probably my favorite Revolution beer that I have had. I will get this again.

Soft red burgundy hue with a dense 'pink' head.

Gargantuan juicy aromas of oranges and grapefruit. Malt, rye, tarry pine and burnt sugar sweetness.

Pleasant sweet malt front, citrus in the middle and resinous hop numbing sensation on the tongue with rye ringing through the nasal cranium. Love the alcohol sensation that keeps this real.

Dense body, chewy and voluptuous. Great cold but I really enjoyed when it warmed up.

Real close to Green Flash Imp Red. Just freakin' delicious. This one is a Hat Trick for sure.
